Reuge Swiss postal stamps
The Swiss postal services honour the region of Sainte–Croix and the Maison "Reuge".
In 1850, just a few years before Reuge started its workshop in 1865, the newly formed and united Switzerland printed their first postal stamps.
A very unique country as the stamps don’t indicate “Schweiz-Suisse-Svizzera-Svizra”, means Switzerland in any of the four official languages – it indicates “HELVETIA”.
Reuge proofs to be as unusual and innovative with their development of high end Swiss Musicboxes and Singing Birds.
In this year’s special edition, the Swiss postal services honour not only the region of Sainte–Croix, the cradle of the musicboxes, but in particular the brand “REUGE” – unique and special worldwide.
On the enclosed photo you see this very unique stamp which can be ordered during a limited time directly at the post office shop in Switzerland.
